‘…she could not bear to lose the chance to be with you for a while longer.’
‘This may complicate matters for me,’ said Daneel thoughtfully.
‘It is in a good cause,’ said Giskard.
Asimov is hilarious and a complete romantic (on multiple levels). And Daneel and Giskard are the cutest best friends ever. —Even more than Daneel+Lije Baley. And even a smidgen ahead of the super cute Aziraphale+Crowley.
SO MANY ALL the things. Podcasts, library books, books on my shelves, streaming audio, friends’ content, news programs, stories, educational programs, ETC.
Too many all the things. I cannot all the things.
Snow Crash ended abruptly, but the ending was not really worse than the rest of it had promised. Tons of excess verbage from cover to cover. But I liked the premises, settings, and characters… Aside from the much excess of it (not so many words necessary to tell the story), I liked it. I’d really like it as a a well-done (multipart?) movie.
I have been lent The Power of NOW, by Eckhart Tolle.
I believe this book has passed my path before, but.. well, I have it now and I’m looking forward to reading it.
‘Have started reading Angels & Demons, by Dan Brown
I just finished reading The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri.
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
and The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.
i almost missed this one…
well thanks, James, for passing it along…. here i go:
I’m posting this because I was half-horrified to learn about this today; how come nobody told me a new Ender
book was coming out? I came upon it by chance — there was a reference on someone’s blog about running into Orson Scott Card in a bookstore, and a visit to Card’s site Hatrack.com
revealed that Shadow of the Giant
is already in stores. Sheesh. The first three chapters
are available online.. I do think Card’s writing isn’t as impressive as it used to be, but I’m already in love with the Ender’s series and its characters, so my order for this book has been necessarily placed.
